I bought the download version for £5.00 so at under 10 pence a track its really great value.
True there are some tracks that now I have listened to it from start to finish without skipping a track I won't be so kind to in the future.
But the real shame as highlighted by other reviewers is that the title is misleading and does a great diservice to all the fantastic music that the US of A has produced over the years in favour admittedly of some great stuff produced in the UK. I daren't start listing artists missed off but there are some glaring omissions that have been identified by others.
What I really like about the compilation is having the essence of all the driving cassettes that I bought in the 80's, when I had hair and weighed substantially less, in one handy collection, so my advice is get over the fact that its not "All American" but enjoy what it has to offer.

"American Anthems" is a fantastic set of eclectic musical hits compiled on three cds. Many of these songs have a happy summer theme and can be played at various parties, picnics, and/or barbecues. This collection is very well put together and contains many soft rock, classic rock, country, and pop classics. I understand that others reading this may have their own personal favorites. There is something for many people contained in "American Anthems" because there are 60 musical tracks. However, I have decided to list some of my personal favorite songs to assist in deciding if "American Anthems" is for you:

From Cd One:
"Don't Stop Believin" by Journey
"I Want to Know What Love Is" by Foreigner
"Amazed" by Lonestar
"Sunny Came Home" by Shawn Colvin

From Cd Two:
"Is This Love" by Whitesnake
"Heaven Is A Place On Earth" by Belinda Carlisle
"Drops of Jupiter" by Train
"Take My Breath Away" by Berlin

From Cd Three:
"Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor
"Wherever You Will Go" by The Calling
"We Built This City" by Starship
"The Way It Is" by Bruce Hornsby

"American Anthems" is a fantastic compilation to get if you are an eclectic music lover who enjoys classic rock, pop, and/or rock music that you can play at home and/or out in the public arena.

I picked this up today and it's a really great collection of all-American tracks (obviously!)
Mostly rock - Journey, Heart, Chicago, Foreigner etc, but then also some brilliant songs from soundtracks such as Flashdance, Karate Kid, Top Gun & Rocky. It's 3CDs, so is good value too. Perfect for the sunshine and an open top car, though for me it's unfortunately more likely to be the M25, rather than Highway 1...

for as long as the charts have been in existance there has allways been a
strong 'american' presence.
looking back on it, must admit i'm a little suprised there hasn't been a
lot more albums available such as this......a earlier reviewer wrote that
every number was a winner on this 3-CD set......spot-on 'it's brilliant.
this compilation covers many of the great songs and names spanning a 30 year
or so period, although to be honest around 60%-plus is from the 80's.
among the tracks on board 'foreigner's' -'i want to know what love is' ( allways
a firm favourite of mine ) 'the cars' -'drive' (an all time classic) 'billy idol's'
-'white wedding' (a must own track) 'santana's'- 'she's not there'(a great power
ballad) also from the 'rocky' films 'survivors' -'eye of the tiger'
no 'american' power ballad or anthem album would be the same without a 'tina turner'
track--this album has 'what's love got to do with it' on board along with 'meatloaf/
cher's' -'dead ringer for love' the'america'track on board is a re-recorded version of
of their 70's hit, also the massive hit from the film 'top gun' 'berlin's' -'take my
breath away'(one of the all-time great pop-sounds) just love this album, other artist's
include 'patti smith'-'journey'-'chicago'-'jennifer rush'-'boston'-'cyndi lauper's' version
of 'true colours' -'cutting crew'-'hall and oates'-'the calling'- along with 'david gates'
(bread's) great love ballad 'baby i'm a want you' -not forgetting one of the all-time
great 'american. anthems written as a tribute to 'buddy holly'-'don mclean's' -'american pie'
in truth every artist on-board is worthy of a mention-however have to stop somewhere--just
check-out the track list, i'm sure you'll agree this 3-CD compilation is just too good to miss
---------enjoy.

I love this, it has all the songs I have bought over the years, but all in one place. It brought back lots of great memories. Highly recommended.

What an album! Great when you're bored driving down the motorway, or just driving to work. So many of the good old favourites are on this album, and more besides...it'll have you trying to guess what songs they are by the intro! This hasn't left the car since we bought it! Would highly recommend if you're a fan of the Power Ballad albums.
